  • Default session type

    Hi all, I frequently am comparing .csv files, and want to do that as a text compare. In an older veorsin I found an option somewhere to specify that csv files should be compared as text. But I can't find such an option in the current version. I end up first running the compare as a csv compare, and then changing the session type. Which is getting very tiresome. Is there still such an option, and if so, where? Thanks

    To make .csv files open in Beyond Compare 4's Text Compare:

    Open Tools > File Formats.
    Click + to create a new format.
    Select Text Format as the type.
    In the General tab, enter *.csv as the mask.

    When you open a pair of files in Beyond Compare 4, it uses the highest format in the list with a matching file mask.
